(VentureBeat) San Diego’s Brain Corp founders developed BrainOS, a proprietary operating system that integrates with off-the-shelf hardware and sensors to provide the “brains” for robots. Dr. Eugene Izhikevich and Dr. Allen Gruber are both computational neuroscientists. A self-described serial entrepreneur, Gruber cofounded the company with Izhikevich in 2009 to bridge the “innovation gap” between artificial intelligence platforms and robotics hardware. Brain Corp’s solution is tailored to the needs of original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) whose robots operate in fulfillment centers, airports, big-box retailers
“BrainOS serves the same role for robots as [Google’s] Android OS does for smartphones — it enables manufacturers to focus on their core competency to make amazing products and Brain Corp to focus on software and AI to enable those products,” he said in an interview conducted via email. “Specifically, [this] technology delivers on its promise of turning existing manually driven machines into autonomous robots.”
